Occassionally I used to make different types of chutney for the break fast. One such chutney is a carrot chutney. Its healthy, colorful chutney which goes very well with idly/dosa.

  2. Sounds good. Will try it out tonight for adai! One small doubt, will the dhaniya seeds' smell not stand out?

  3. Hi Nivedita

    We are frying the dhaniya seeds before grinding so the raw smell wont be there. But if you dont like the smell, you can reduce the quantity of dhaniya
